I do get fairly close when trying to get video of the group, but the camera apeture and running the video through motion stabilization has a tendency to make it appear as if I'm right on top of the person. In the last video it looks like I might have gotten hit with the dust, but it was actually a couple of feet away. That said I did ride through a far amount of dust throughout the trip. This is where a filter skin comes in handy. We ran these on all three bikes, but mine was the only one that really got dirty. I actually pulled the skin off right before the chain failed. These things are great if you're on a long ride or going to be in very dusty conditions. Your air filter can be really dirty, then pull off the filter skin and it's almost completey clean again.

Thanks,
Baron
